The parent company for online poker site Full Tilt Poker has revealed that a splash page boasting New Jersey licensing was a mistake.
Amaya Gaming's Eric Hollreiser announced the error in a statement, which read: "We have been developing a real money mobile poker app that has been submitted to the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement as part of the review process of our application to offer real money gaming under a NJ DGE license."
"Unfortunately, a bug in an update to the Full Tilt play money poker app inadvertently included a pop-up window alerting players in New Jersey that a licensed real money offering was available."
The error was revealed by a New Jersey man who visited Full Tilt's .net domain through his mobile device. Amaya claims that the error went out to a very small number of visitors. The company reiterated that the mobile poker app was never available for players, and neither was registration.
